The weather in Hong Kong is getting very humid these days, not only that the washed clothes cannot get dry, even the floor can be slippery somehow, so I rushed to buy a Dehumidifier (抽濕機) this afternoon, which actually is long overdued since the old Dehumidifier was disposed.

Since I recall that the recent report from Consumer council (消委會) seemed to have positive reviews on Mitsubishi Dehumidifier (三菱抽濕機), plus some personal assessments, I made a quick decision to get the 25L model - MJ-E26CX-H, which is quite costly at HKD 4599.90!

I chose this high end model over MJ-E16AX-H and MJ-E22WX-H not because I am the kind of person who always wants the latest and best, while people usually make decision based on area size, I consider other factors:

- I can move this thing easily around, it has got roller wheels!

- It can send warm air downward toward the floor (向下送風), which is important to make the floor dry and thus, less slippery.

I don't really believe in the factor on area size unless you are talking about real big house, I think features can be more relevant.

And I tested it for a few hours, the effect on clothings is not too obvious yet probably because I cannot setup the places properly yet, but it does collect a lot of water quickly, and it is rather quiet, and the control is easy to use. I have good confidence in Japanese quality despite the recent issues in certain automobile brands (hmmm, are the cars manufactured in Japan anyway?), well, these Dehumidifiers (抽濕機) are made in Japan.

Is it worth the money? For an appliances that you use for years and is a necessity in such humid weather, plus the potential to help improve air quality, I think I can save money elsewhere, but not on this one.

By the way, Dehumidifiers are in big demand as I can see at the department stores, especially those from Mitsubishi (三菱), so if you live in very humid areas in Hong Kong and you think you really need one, better act now.
